You can donate any ‘in-date’ food items in most supermarkets. Drop boxes are
normally located at store exits so that you can drop in items at the end of your
weekly shop. Supermarket collections are one of the main ways that food is donated
to help those in crisis.
You can also drop items at the Food Bank in Bishop’s Stortford on Mondays,
Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is a trolley at the back of the hall. Contact our
coordinator for further information.
If you would like more information about how to give financial donations, please
contact our Treasurer: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to know more about how the food donated helps those in need,
please contact our coordinator on the details above.
